2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Notes from 2004. Gold pour with medium white head and carbonated appearance. Hopcit in aroma and taste, with some honey in the finish. This, as far as I’m concerned, was a first offering from iron Hill, and boy have they come a long way since then.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
An ale that is designed to be the non-beer drinkers beer. Neat idea and it works as most of the people I enjoyed dinner with had one. Frankly for me though the beer ,while better than BMC’s offerings, did not overly impress me. It’s pretty standard in it’s bright yellow, slightly hazy pour while holding a decent head afloat. It lacks any real character on the palate and finishes right where it left off, asking you if you want to try something else.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
At the Newark, Delaware location: Crystal-golden with light maltiness in both aroma and flavor. Bit of a citrusy bite, but unnoteworthy.

Iron Hill started out in a college town; Newark, Delaware. Newark is a college town and there are a lot of bars. So I guess Iron Hill needed to have something lighter to compete with other bars to catch the college kid crowd. Really light and watery. Expensive college beer.

Why would a microbrew waste its time on an imitation American light beer?

Not a whole lot of body to it, very light, a very light golden color, kept a nice head throughout the pint, very crisp & smooth I’ll give it that, but just too much like a Bud
